Tuition and Fee Payment Policy and Procedures
- When registering on campus, a copy of the student’s schedule/bill prints out at the Admissions and Records Office or the student can log into MyAims to view/print their bill. This is considered the first billing.
When registering off campus/online, it is the student’s responsibility to view/print the schedule/bill via MyAims. The college participates in e-billing, paper bills are only mailed at the end of the semester if a balance is owed.
Full payment or signing up for an MyPaymentPlan is due by the payment deadlines. Financial Aid awards and third party authorizations will be considered as payments for those who qualify.
Direct payments (non MyPaymentPlan) should be mailed to the address below in time to be received in the Cashier’s office by the posted payment deadlines.

The student is responsible for timely drop (refund) or withdrawal (no refund) from a class. All course drop and withdrawal deadlines are listed on your bill online. It is the student’s responsibility to be aware of deadline dates, accumulated charges and to pay tuition and fees incurred by specified dates.
Students are required to have all outstanding tuition and fees paid by the Final Payment Deadline. If not paid by the Final Payment Deadline, any registrations for future semesters may be in jeopardy of being cancelled due to non-payment even if student has completed one of the payment options for that future semester.
- Students sponsored by a third-party agency: Please note: Students will receive monthly e-bills until the 3rd party authorization is processed and credited to the student account.
- Students' accounts will NOT be credited with 3rd party payments until after the Full Term course Drop Deadline for the semester. Students can expect to see the 3rd party payments posted to their accounts within 30-45 days after the Full Term course Drop Deadline. (Basically all 3rd party should be posted by midterms) Then, refunds will be processed according to all refunding policies, procedures and timeframes.
- Aims Community College needs to have a valid original letter of sponsorship from your sponsor on file in Cashier's Office before you will be considered for agency billing purposes. The letter of sponsorship must show exactly what the sponsor will cover either which classes or a maximum amount. Students who have not paid their tuition and fee charges by the Final Payment Deadline will not be allowed to register for the upcoming semester and/or all future registrations will be canceled. Authorizations CANNOT be accepted by telephone. A valid letter of sponsorship needs to include the following:
- Addressed to Aims Community College, Attn: Cashier’s Office, and dated
- Student's name and student number
- Specifications of what the agency will pay for such as tuition, fees, books, etc. OR actual dollar amount to be covered. Sponsor letters for student books need to be delivered to the Aims Bookstore before purchases are made.
- Agency's billing address and authorized signature
- Specifications of length of sponsorship such as school year, semester, OR actual class(es) to be covered.
- Students are responsible for making arrangements for agency billing at the time of registration and following payment guidelines as listed above.
- Students are responsible for any charges not covered by their agency and are subject to late fees and refund guidelines.
- Letters of sponsorship must be submitted each semester. It is the student's responsibility to ensure paperwork is on file each semester by the deadlines.
- If being covered for books and supplies in addition of tuition/fees, a separate letter must be given to the bookstore. To clarify, if the sponsor is covering tuition/fee and books/supplies, a letter needs to be given to the Cashier office for tuition/fees and a second letter or copy needs to be given to the bookstore.
- Most agencies will be invoiced 30-45 days after the Full Term course drop period. Agencies should make payment in full prior to the next subsequent registration in order for the student(s) to be allowed to register for other classes.

Rights of the student’s record are NOT inherent to the parent once a student attends an institution greater than 12th grade. All rights go to the student even thou the student may still be attending High School.
